Subject: Omg
Omg, this was great and very helpful. I was brought to tears when I read this document, to know that things were like that I terrible. I makes me really sceptical about the survival of the human race and other species on the Earth, if we treat each other like this. The world needs change and fast. This has been a great resource for my project on the great reformer Dorothea Dix.
